Windows 7: Skydrive & MS Office Web App

Win7 64Bit Enterprise
Skydrive & MS Office Web App

Firstly, if this is the wrong sub-forum to post this, pls excuse me. I tried to make an educated guess. I'll try posting it on 1 of the other related sub-forums as well.

So, I've got a customer with a cloud on Skydrive where he has an Excel spreadsheet that's shared so that others can edit simultaneously. He wants to be able to click on an email address in the spreadsheet that should be formatted for auto emailing. However, the stupid web app only allows a user to change the display text. It does NOT allow to format the contents in that column to automatically boot gmail in his browser when you click on an email address; even though, you can format the text to be blue, and LOOK like it's formatted for HTTP. I cleared that formatting so I can start from scratch.

I've checked in the Control Pnl to choose default programs, so that it doesn't automatically boot his local version of Outlook; but it doesn't have the pop-up box to choose your e-mail client automatically when he clicks any of the addresses. PLEASE HELP...PLEASE!

Thanks z3r010. Where/what did you place the email? I mean, was it in an Excel spreadsheet on your local PC drive? Can you please elaborate a little more?
